I found the website first, and I was very impressed with it. I started the exercise program and got all the way to week 4, but then started to struggle with progress. I then started to wonder if the book might provide more information that could get me past my plateau, so I bought it.
Quite frankly, I think there is actually less info in the book. The extras that the webite refer to are simply trivia and historical facts about other people's press-up records. Nothing in the book provided extra training tips, or advice on form, that I could use. Not only that, the sets of press-ups required to complete each training session are completely different in the book to the ones published on the website, so to continue with the program I was already on I would have to ignore the information in the book I just paid for!
I have switched to the sets planned out in the book, and I am now making slow progress again, but I don't think it's the book that actually helped me. If you haven't lost money on this product already, I would suggest you steer clear and use the free online version.

There is nothing new in this book at all and I don't think the approach of increasing numbers and sets but leaving rest periods the same works either.Doing a 100 press ups divided into sets of ten or twenty and steadily decreasing the rest period makes more sense and certainly got me up to 60 press ups at 44 years old. All those who follow and are successful with the program from the book must be super light with incredible muscular endurance. I find it hard to believe that a runner with no previous upper body training can succeed with this program, as stated in the book.

Two years ago I smashed my shoulder completely in an accident - broken humerus, dislocated shoulder and the ball of the humerus was smashed. You could see bits of bone floating around in the x-ray. I had to wait 8 weeks for surgery and spent 3 months after that with my left arm immobile.

I couldn't do a single press up when I bought this book. I had to start by facing the wall and pushing myself away from the wall while standing upright. Gradually I was able to do push ups using a window cill. Then I did them from my knees on the floor and finally I was able to start the programme properly.

When I first started I didn't read the book properly and I didn't warm up. This was ok to start with, but as I loaded up my arms I started to get problems. Months later I sat down and read the book properly. I now warm up as the book says and stretch afterwards as the book says and I've had no problems at all.

This morning, in the middle of week 5 of the programme, after 5 sets of pushups, I've just done 31 consecutive push ups, which is exactly on target.

You can understand from my story why I might have doubts about my ability to complete the programme. I look at the number of push ups it says to do next and part of me says "you can't do that". I then get down and do them just like the programme says - and I can! Today's total was 103.

Face your fears and doubts and do it anyway. I am so glad I bought this book.

It's a somewhat decent book about the wonderful exercise, the Pushup.

While you get a program that might work for someone, and some decent exercise tips, this seems like a rushed job. Better editing, more coaching and more tips on how to make this fit into a normal exercise routine would make this a better book.

And the programs don't really deliver at all.

Too much hype, too little actual content

This is a very good book in the sense that it gets you in shape without having to spend a penny! It even has a spreadsheet to download to enter your results into, so you can chart your progress.
Also prersented in a clear and concise way, with photographs to explain some points.

Title sums things up.

This is more detailed than the hundred push-ups site.
You're provided with 6 different workout programs, depending
on what your strength level is. They span from 7 to 10 weeks,
depending on how fast or slow you want to take it.

This also includes additional warm-up exercises + illustrations
and stretching post-push ups illustrations.

Even more once you're done with the 100 push ups challenge it provides
a lot of alternative ways for you to do your next 100 push ups so you
increase your strength further.

I'm pleased with the book :)

Perhaps I am relatively slow to achieve results, but I also find it hard to believe the majority of people can follow this.

I took the initial test and did 32 press-ups (as a 35 year) which meant I started at the highest level, so I don't think the problem is being super unfit in the first place.

I'm on my 8th week now and still can't complete week 4! More specifically - Friday's workout. I keep repeating it every session, but can't get more than 20-25 on the last set yet. The program suddenly seems to ramp up the difficulty levels at this point.

I don't give up easily, but this may be discouraging for other purchasers.

Incidentally, I can do around 45 now which is at least a 33% improvement, and I definitely look and feel more muscular, hence I still give 3 stars.

However - 45 is a LONG way short of 100 after this much training.
